Valley Milk joins Global Dairy Trade

19 April 2023




Global Dairy Trade (GDT) is pleased to announce Valley Milk, LLC will begin offering SMP on GDT Events from June/July 2023.

Valley Milk was started by five multi-generational Central Valley California dairy families, nutritionists, and veterinarians. Valley Milk has a milk processing facility in Turlock, CA, supplied by 18 family owned dairy farms. Valley Milk produces a full range of milk powders and plans to begin AMF production in 2024.

Valley Milk CEO Glenn Wallace said, “As Valley Milk has evolved over the past 5 years of operations, we are continually looking for additional ways of creating value for our products and our customers.

“Partnering with GDT provides us with an efficient way to expand our direct customer relationships across all major dairy importing countries, whilst having confidence in knowing our product has sold at the market price,” Mr. Wallace said.

Global Dairy Trade CEO Eric Hansen said Valley Milk is a fantastic new addition to GDT Events. “It further builds out the export reference prices for US SMP and offers more great purchasing options for our buyers.”

The GDT Events service brings together buyers and sellers of globally traded dairy products from 60 countries to trade US$ 2-3 billion annually.

“We are seeking new sellers of varying sizes from all global milk pools. This will give our bidders more choice and enable GDT to provide the dairy industry with credible reference prices for more products and across more regions," Mr. Hansen said. "It will be great to have Valley Milk’s contribution as a further step along this path. We look forward to providing Valley Milk with the benefits of accessing our global sales channel."
